Even on a cloudy day

Even on a cloudy day has become our household mantra. It's always easy to be there for someone in the good times, when the sun is shining on you and the world is good. The people you want with you are the ones that stick with you when the sun goes in.

In a few days time my blog will be 6, a few of you have been putting up with my drivel ahem reading about me and mine for that long. I have shared stories of my general lack of ability to be a responsible middle aged woman in a Per Una cardie, been with me when I gave up teaching, laughed with me over my romantic disasters and kept me going when the kids were defeating me. I think the kids defeating me has been the main theme of this blog. I should really be giving out prizes or money for your therapy at least.

Instead of which, I shall share with you a secret and possibly a photo or 2 of my favourites.

On Sunday, I got married. You can read all about it HERE

Working Mum said...

For a minute there I thought you'd married Len Goodman! No, really, congratulations! Great news!

auntiegwen said...

WM - I'm sure it was the dancing skills and not the 50 shades of grey hair that made you think that !!!! thank you

Working Mum said...

Oh gosh, it wasn't your hubby - it was the date: Len got married in secret on the same day! Note to self - explain bizarre comments!

Sonya said...

What a wonderful secret - so pleased for you. Seeing photos of you both and the children brought me slightly to tears.

All the happiness in the world to you and your family.

xx

auntiegwen said...

WM - oh I didn't realise he had, it was just that Andrew had blogged a few weeks ago about his lack of dancing skills! Oh that would have been too funny if I'd married a famous person, if my new husband is reading this, please don't divorce me, poor man, I think I've insulted him about 50 times in the comments!

auntiegwen said...

Sonya - thank you, we really did have the most beautiful day xx

Lesley said...

I'm speechless ..... and very pleased to hear such good news! Congratulations xx

sandiart said...

Ahh, you minx, a secret well kept, so very, very happy for you and you looked gorgeous, although I still haven't seen your gorgeous face properly yet. Oh and by the way if you are over 100 then I must be at least 130 and pooh to no snow at Christmas, you have almost popped the bubble of my fantasy.

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Wowser, how did you keep that a secret, BAGgie! You look amazing and it looks as if a fine time was had by all - Two years you've been keeping him under wraps - Two years! There is a place for you in the Secret Service, I'm sure!
